The mega event known as Honda Day really needs no explanation. You've read about the event in Honda Tuning, seen photos online, and heard about the hoards of participants and spectators that make their way to every Honda Day event. That being said, this event had a special surprise for the hardcore Honda fans, in that an industry icon made his way to the event and even brought along a little eye candy. If you didn't see it plastered all over the web, Mr Spoon himself, Tatsuru Ichishima, stopped by for the weekend. Swarmed by fans for two straight days, Mr. Ichishima was able to stop signing autographs long enough to help fire up the Spoon E-AT chassis Civic, a DOHC ZC-powered hatch that spits out over 200 hp. To pilot the car for a few demo laps was Drift expert, all-around outstanding driver and quite the celebrity himself, Daijiro Yoshihara.
Beyond the stars in attendance, fans were treated to two action packed days for intense drag racing action, a massive car show, a packed vendor row, and much more. Oh, and then there's that little detail that really shows how Honda Day gives back to the fans; they raffled off another car! This time around, a white RSX loaded with a wheel/tire package, custom interior, performance parts; and the best part was the fact that someone drove home in it free and clear.
